I’m baaaack!

February 24, 2008

Sadly, I didn’t get to Fort Myers (turns out it’s a 3 1/2 hour drive–one way–from where I was staying).

Instead, I went to Port St. Lucie to see the Mets!  As in, The Good Team From NY. As in, The Enemy-Of-My-Enemy-Is-My-Friend Team. As in, The Team With Pedro Martinez and Johan Santana.

It was AWESOME.

Of course, I would have preferred 1,000 times to see the Red Sox. Of course. But this was pretty good.

Pictures to follow soon..

And in other news, Tito FINALLY got his contract. Good. Of course.

Brr.

According to NESN, it’s 23 degrees Fahrenheit here in Boston.

Fort Myers?

76 degrees.

(They also just showed the pitchers doing some running. Buchholz and Matsuzaka were in the front. Julian Tavarez was lagging way, way in the back. Okajima was quite speedy.)

(Now they’re showing the catchers–‘Tek, ‘Belli, Cash, Kottaras–taking BP. Kottaras is looking good. I like his swing. I’d like to see him get some more playing time in the majors later on this year.)

(David Pauley and Julian Tavarez are now walking. No, wait–they’re jogging again, but Tavarez looks quite fatigued.)
